    Just bought these snips and really like the grip. If they last a long time, it will be a bonus.

    Sharp snips! My old pair of snips (no name brand) struggled snipping line so I upgraded to Orvis snips and they haven't failed me. They're good looking and sharp.

    Easy nymphing - 6/26/2014

    I love these snips... easy to tie and the best if you want to use two flies. Great for nymphing! Try them on.

    These are THE snips! - 5/20/2014
    By: from North Carolina

    The Orvis Ergonomic Snips do a great job of clipping of the tag ends of threads, shortening wings that are a little too long, clearing eyelets of excess head cement, and that's about it... They are designed for a simple purpose, and execute their job flawlessly!

    So Sharp - 4/16/2014
    By: from Davis CA

    I've purchased many different types of snippers over the years, and they all invariably go dull. This one is the best and the sharpest. It does what it has to do, with ease and simplicity.

    Gift for daughter - 12/14/2013
    By: from Ann Arbor, Mi.

    I've used these snips for a couple of years now and they are great. They have held up well, are significantly more comfortable and easier to use than the older non-ergo model. My daughter inherited an older Orvis model from me and has wished aloud many times on the stream for snips like mine. She will get her wish this Christmas! (I also bought an extra pair for backup). Great product!

    Good quality nipper - 8/30/2013
    By: from Rathdrum, Idaho

    The nipper works well and is reasonably priced. I have big hands and fingers and the nipper is easier to operate for me.

    Great Snips! - 8/11/2013

    These are great sharp snips. They take little effort to cut leader and were an upgrade to the snips I had. Only reason I gave 4 stars was due to price.
